Cotonsport of Garoua head coach Gabriel Haman has sanctioned the return of first choice keeper Allambatnan Gadin, Macgregor Yeraloh, Emmanuel Igboeri as he released a 22-man squad to challenge Al Ahly of Egypt in a delayed Match Day 1 fixture of the TotalEnergies CAF Champions League.
Gadin, Macgregor and Emmanuel who all missed the 1-2 defeat at home to Al Ahly in match day three return to the team as Coton expands their squad to include three keepers and also replace Aboubakar Siddik and skipper Kamilou Daouda.
The delayed fixture scheduled for this Friday at the Al-Salaam Stadium in Cairo is an opportunity for both sides to finally get their campaign underway after an enduring disappointing start in the two games so far.
Wassou Goue Patient who has scored twice in the opening two games of the competition is expected to lead the Cameroonian clubs hopes of creating an upset in Cairo.
Al Ahly enter the fixture with just a point recorded in the 2-2 draw against current leaders Mamelodi Sundowns FC last weekend in match day three while pointless Coton must at least get a point to prevent an early exit from the group stages of this season’s competition.
The 5PM kick off this Friday will be quite interesting as it could impact the fate of all four clubs in the tight Group C currently dominated by Sundowns with 7 points while Al Hilal are a point behind after three games apiece.
